Spend, Save Or Splurge – Everything Cool This Weekend Along The Wasatch Front. There’s some pressure here. My kids all start school next Monday. If this weekend isn’t a blowout of Awesome, there will be bitter recriminations for years to come. I can see Zachie now as valedictorian of his high school class, talking about “values” and “reaching higher” or some such nonsense and then he’ll suddenly blurt “and my mom and dad didn’t do ANYTHING GOOD the weekend we went back into the slavery of school!” So, here’s a list to get you started.
